Government Relations and Advocacy
Since 1977, the Lupus Foundation of America and its network of lupus advocates across the country have worked diligently to stimulate millions of dollars in federal and state funds for lupus research and education programs, while also working to ensure people with lupus have access to the care they need and deserve.
We must continue to make our voices heard and educate our elected officials about the impact of lupus on individuals and their families. The United States federal government continues to be one of the largest funders of lupus research in the world, so it is vital government officials hear from the lupus community throughout the year.
The Lupus Foundation of America is committed to working with the United States Congress, federal government agencies, and state legislatures and agencies to improve the lives of the more than 1.5 million Americans living with lupus.
Together, we can solve this cruel mystery.
